In what sounds like a fairy tale written by Freud, a woman in Japan was arrested last week for living inside another man's flat – without his knowledge or consent. The Woman Inside. The man noticed food had gone missing from his refrigerator, and so he set up a home surveillance network... which revealed the woman coming and going from a small "cubby hole" in the floor of his closet. She had apparently been living there for nearly a year. BBC. (Thanks, Alex!)

This should be the sequel to The Woman in the Dunes. Instead of the man trying to get out, it's the woman trying to stay in.

Another film that springs to mind is "Bin-jip" by Ki-duk Kim, paradoxically perhaps exactly because the house in question was not empty...

Distinctly reminds me of "The Human Chair" by Edogawa Ranpo.
